Funeral Mass—can be arranged through funeral directors. Memorial Masses for someone who died during these past few months who might have had a ‘funeral service’ can be arranged. Please call the rectory.

Mass Times—for the immediate future: Saturday Vigil Mass: 4:00 p.m. at St. Timothy. We will NOT have the 5:30 p.m. at St. Rita for the time being. Sunday Mass: 7:00 a.m. at St. Timothy; 9:00 a.m. at St. Timothy; 11:00 a.m. at St. Rita (please note NEW Mass time at St. Rita---for the immediate future).  

Offertory Collection—please place your offertory donation into the containers as you enter the church. We will not pass the collection baskets.

On-Line Masses—recognizing that some parishioners will not feel comfortable coming back to the church building just yet, we will continue to “Live Stream” the 9:00 a.m. Mass at St. Timothy.



  1. Please be PATIENT, especially over the first few weekends!
  2. BYOS----Bring Your Own Sanitizer…..if possible. Use it before you enter church and use it as you leave. We have a small supply! Many people now carry small bottles of hand sanitizer in their purses or pockets. This will help us! Thanks.
  3. Thank you for your support of the parish by mailing in or dropping off your offertory envelopes! We are so very grateful. If you cannot come to church please continue to mail in your envelopes! They are essential for our viability.
  4. We are making plans to reschedule our celebrations of First Communion and Confirmation. These masses will be limited to the young people receiving the sacraments and a small number of family members/guests.
  5. We will use only the MAIN ENTRANCE for weekend masses for a while----so that we can literally ‘count’ the number of parishioners entering the church…….we are limited in the number who can be at Mass.
